Mackenzie Kupfer is an aspiring writer and gardener in Boise, Idaho, USA. She began gardening when she was seven years old with her Nana in the Shenandoah River Valley, Virginia. Having been raised on the lush east coast, it’s been challenging (but fun!) to transition into the dryer climates of the western US. She’s passionate about the active gardening lifestyle, conservation, design, and the delicious veggies she grows. She currently writes for fire pit supplier, Avant Garden Décor.
